    I have collected these peanut jar over the years and now my wife use them in the kitchen. I believe Tom's Peanut Co was bought out by the giant snack food Co, Lance Inc.

      I recently acquired a jar with "Eat Tom's Toasted Peanuts" printed on it. Can anyone tell me when this jar was made?
    6. ttomtucker ttomtucker, 11 years ago
      Tom, That Tom's jar was used during the 1930's
    7. Tom, 11 years ago
      ttomtucker, thank you for the response. I was thinking the jar may have been from the 40's/early 50's so this is a pleasant surprise. Thanks again.

      Our jar has a red handle on the lid, it says, Enjoy Tom's Toasted Peanuts Delicious. Does it hold any value and how old it is? I want to keep it, from our Mom's kitchen, but feel I should pay the estate a fair value.
    9. ttomtucker ttomtucker, 11 years ago
      The larger jars run about $75.00 and up and the smaller jars about $40.00. The Enjoy Tom's Toasted Peanuts was the second logo they used from the late 1940's through the 1950's.

      We have the "Eat Tom's Toasted Peanuts 5 cents" like the one pictured. What can you tell me about it? My husband already had it when we met 40 years ago. My job was eliminated and we may be having a sale. Thank you for your thoughts.
    12. ttomtucker ttomtucker, 11 years ago
      jkpatten, "The Eat Tom's Toasted Peanuts" are the older jars. the very large jar sell for around $50.00 and smaller Jar about $25.00/35.00.

      I have a Tom's Jar. The one I have is a large glass jar with a metal lid. The lid is silver with a red knob on top and it says Tom's. The writing on the glass jar is in black. Have you seen any like this before?
    17. Signaholic Signaholic, 11 years ago
      I have 2 of the Tom's jars and love'em too! Yours are great. Mine are like you first 2, blue one and red one. NICE!

      I am looking to replace a Tom's peanut jar, black writing and "Property of Tom...Columbus, Ga " on bottom. Our's was dropped and it was from my wife's father's grocery store. Need it as a surprise gift. Anybody willing to part with theirs, let me know.

      We purchased a "enjoy Tom's Toasted Peanuts Delicious" jar at a thrift store. We keep cheese & cracker and peanut butter & cracker snacks in it. My three boys think its "cool". :D

      My Dad sold Tom's peanuts and Chips in the early 70's in Southeast Mo.

      I have a wooden toms snack case with glass front. It has theree holes in top of it,what are they for?
    28. antiquemama2, 10 years ago
      I have one of those cabinets and the holes are for brackets to hold the small Tom's jars in them. Will post a pic later. They are neat display pieces with the jars on top.

      I just purchased a jar that has a clear lid with a red knob that says tom's. However, the bottom portion is just clear glass - shape is round. Were there original bottoms made like this, or is it not the correct one? Thanks for your help

      I had my Grandmother's Eat Tom's Toasted Peanuts jar that recently was broken, any idea where I might get another one? I know it wont be my Grandmother's but I would like to replace it.
    31. ttomtucker ttomtucker, 9 years ago
      I see them offered on Ebay about once a week or so.

      I need to know the age of the Tom's Toasted Peanuts glass jars . I see black lettering, red lettering, and blue and don't know the age period of each.
